I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip Reviews
Alicia doesn’t just write a collection of poetry and put it out into the world. She delivers an entire poetic experience. From content to concept, Alicia never fails to be truly brilliant.
I received a free digital copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
The moment this book hits the shelves, I am buying it. Good lord! The emotion and depth in some of these is incredible. "This isn't about the number six" had me bawling my eyes out cause I've been there. This book definitely gives all of the feels!

good enough to taste"
I received an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Alicia Cook’s new poetry collection in exchange for an honest review. This book deals with some heavy topics, so I suggest every reader looks at the Trigger Warning (TW) at the beginning of the collection and in the table of contents before reading the poems.
I fell in love with Alicia’s work after I read her first book, “Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately”. I have been craving more of her beautiful poetry since I closed that book about a year ago. I was ...more

"We are all recovering from something. This is for all of us."
After reading "Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately" By Alicia Cook, which instantly turned into my favourite poetry collection, I obviously couldn't wait to read this!
Before I get started I just want to say I am so glad for the trigger warnings in the beginning and also on each of the poems. I think all books should have them and I appreciate when they do.
I just want to say thank you so much to the Author and Andrew McMeel Publishing for providing me with a physical copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Just like in her first poetry collection Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately this collection is divided into 2 parts. Part one is called The EP and part two is called The LP which like mentioned in the synopsis is modeled after a vinyl record. I find the way she formats her collection to be really unique and this one is made even more uniq ...more
Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with the ARC of I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip in exchange for an honest review!
Someone please just give Alicia Cook all the awards. I read her mixtape, Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately last year and absolutely fell in love with Cook's poetry. When I saw this on Netgalley, of course I had to request it. The mixtape was incredible, but this was something else entirely. Poetry rarely moves me enough to make me cry, but I was sobbing throughout this. Having lost a f ...more
Alicia's mixtape was pure brilliance, from the cover, to the concept, to the content, but the record is next level. Cook doesn't just write books. She takes you on a lyrical journey. And this time, she gives you the melodies.
With the mixtape she gave you a suggested playlist, and with this release, she gives you the music. The songs that have been shared so far have all made me cry. Hindsight and Pictures featuring Chris Andrews is something I play on repeat until my heart can't take it anymore. ...more
